  • Family member praises good work of PSW

    A Personal Support Worker at Carveth Care Centre has won her second workplace award in less than five years.

    “Debbie Hoadley goes above and beyond in delivering care to my mother and showing respect for her and her caregivers, always with a friendly greeting,” explains Peter Waycik, the family member who nominated her for Employee of the Month for November 2022.

    The award now recognizes a staff member who support residents’ rights. Debbie is the first staff member to be nominated by a family member.

    “I noted that when Debbie was responsible for my mother's care, she would go so far as to set an alarm to make sure my mother got a drink between meals,” explains Peter, kindly.

    Debbie has worked at Carveth Care Centre for approximately seven years. She is known for her dedication and professionalism. Peter is a regular visitor to the home.

    “Debbie is always respectful when delivering care, talking to my mother even though she doesn't usually reply, and letting her know what care is being provided,” says Peter.

    “She obviously values the role of family caregivers in any interaction I've had with her. It is too bad that there aren't more Debbies around.”

  • Health-care worker comes a long way in one year

    A young health-care worker at a local nursing home has accomplished a lot in one-year.

    Amanda Tracey started as a placement student at Helen Henderson Care Centre in 2021; commuting from Belleville.

    More than one-year later, she earned a permanent job as a personal support worker and Employee of the Month for November 2022. She also moved to Amherstview.

    Smiling at the news of her workplace award, the 21-year-old Loyalist College graduate admits, “Everyone has been so friendly and welcoming here. I love all of the residents and staff.”

    Coworkers nominated Amanda for the award at the popular retirement lodge and long-term care home. They describe her as cheerful, happy and a pleasure to work with.

    “Amanda is a lovely person with a big heart and a beautiful smile who brings joy to residents and staff alike,” says Assistant Director of Care, Melissa Locke.

    Director of Care Sue Reynolds echoes that sentiment.

    “Amanda is a quiet, thoughtful, kind person,” says Sue. “Her smile is the first thing you notice, but then you witness amazing interactions with the residents which are purposeful, engaging and honest.  We are fortunate to have Amanda as part of the Helen Henderson team. She is valued and appreciated.”
